  • Patent number: 11899569
    Abstract: A system that includes a failed test detector and a task updater can automatically update tasks associated with consistent failures of software tests in a software development management platform. The failed test detector can use a set of evidence of test (EOT) files that indicate software testing results over a period of time to identify tests that are consistently failing when executed against versions of a software application. The task updater can automatically create tasks associated with such consistently-failing tests in the software development management platform. The task updater can also automatically close existing tasks associated with tests, in the software development management system, if the failed test detector determines that those tests are no longer failing consistently.

  • Patent number: 11567857
    Abstract: A service testing system is disclosed to enable consistent replay of stateful requests on a service whose output depends on the service's execution state prior to the requests. In embodiments, the service implements a compute engine that executes service requests and a storage subsystem that maintains execution states during the execution of stateful requests. When a stateful request is received during testing, the storage subsystem creates an in-memory test copy of the execution state to support execution of the request, and provides the test copy to the compute engine. In embodiments, the storage subsystem will create a separate instance of execution state for each individual test run. The disclosed techniques enable mock execution states to be easily created for testing of stateful requests, in a manner that is transparent to the compute engine and does not impact production execution data maintained by the service.

  • Patent number: 11405182
    Abstract: Technologies are shown for HGM based control for smart contract execution. HGM control rules control function calls at a system level utilizing function boundary detection instrumentation in a kernel that executes smart contracts. The detection instrumentation generates a call stack that represents a chain of function calls in the kernel for a smart contract. The HGM control rules are applied to HGMs collected from the call stack to allow or prohibit specific HGMs observed in functions or function call chains. HGM control rules can use dynamic state data in the function call chain. If the dynamic state data observed in function call chains does not meet the requirements defined in the HGM control rules, then the function call can be blocked from executing or completing execution. The HGM control rules can be generated by executing known sets of acceptable or vulnerable smart contracts and collecting the resulting HGMs.

  • Patent number: 11275613
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for enforcing processor quality of service guarantees when servicing system service requests (SSRs) are disclosed. A system includes a first processor executing an operating system and a second processor executing an application which generates SSRs for the first processor to service. The first processor monitors the number of cycles spent servicing SSRs over a previous time interval, and if this number of cycles is above a threshold, the first processor starts delaying the servicing of subsequent SSRs. In one implementation, if the previous delay was non-zero, the first processor increases the delay used in the servicing of subsequent SSRs. If the number of cycles is less than or equal to the threshold, then the first processor services SSRs without delay. As the delay is increased, the second processor begins to stall and its SSR generation rate falls, reducing the load on the first processor.
